Solar Panel Cost
A typical 6KW solar system produces an average of 18 kWh to 27kWh in a day. This average is only based on energy-produced ranges that work with several factors such as shading, the orientation of the panels, installation location, and tilt angle. In other words, the actual power output may be less or more.
The South Australia government has come up with the Switch for Solar program to provide free 4.4kw solar panels to recipients of the cost of living concession. Beneficiaries of the program will stop receiving the concession for ten years. The program aims to help them save $200 – 600 annually on their electricity bills.
How much you pay for a ground-mounted solar system depends on the racking system and the size of the solar system. A 6KW solar system for your home costs $4,000 – $6,000. For a ground-mounted, the cost increases to $8,500 – $16,000 due to the extra expense of digging post hole, and adding a racking system.
Solar panels are expensive because of 3 main factors: Made from expensive raw materials – Silicon, which is a major component in most solar cells, is difficult and expensive to purify. Require professional installation – A large cost of solar energy is the fitting and connection to your home and grid. It takes 5 – 6 hours for a team of 3 electricians to get the job completed.
Townsville is a fairly sunny region, which makes it perfect for rooftop solar. 600,000 QLD households and businesses have already installed a solar system. That’s 30% of all households.

Produce your own energy and save money on your energy bills with solar PV systems
The cost of solar panels depends on their size. The 6.6kW system, which is the most popular solar system in Australian homes, goes for $5,320. This is the average cost in Adelaide, SA. The average cost of a solar system of the same size in Australia is $5,466. This puts the price of the system in Adelaide on the lower end of the national price.
